To think telling someone to 'shut up' because you don't like the song they're singing is rude?

At work I was singing (very quietly, I promise!) a pop song as I went about my business and colleague said 'you need to shut up, I fucking hate that song!'

But it's ok for her to have her music BLASTING out at deafening levels when travelling in her car (we have to travel in pairs part of the job.)

AIBU to think that was really, REALLy rude?

Yanbu. I suppose she'd describe herself as direct and no nonsense

Tell her she's a twunt with massive billowing fanny flaps.

That'll fuck her off.

The way she said it was really rude, but people singing at work is really irritating too, so I'm on the fence

Yes she was really rude, I hope you carried on humming and pretended you never heard the daft mare.

Are you just a shit singer?

Was it "shake it off"?

Are you the OP with the chain smoking car colleague?

Toofattorun Sat 08-Nov-14 17:25:12

Just keep singing "why you gotta be so rude?" Over and over again!!

I can't think of a time when "Shut up" isn't rude. I can't stand that thing on the telly for saying "Shat up" as in "No way!".

I thought that too.

Yes she put it rudely but you really shouldn't be singing at work, it's incredibly annoying. It's also different t playing music while in a car.

She smokes but I've not posted on here about it. What thread?

Ehric - I think a little song from me is quite tame in terms of 'annoying colleagues'!
